We're All In This Together

This is the first year in many that I have not participated in the 30 Hour Famine. It is a movement that I so believe in, and am thrilled to see the students I leave behind continue to embrace. If you know a student participating this year, give. Your participation through your giving will have a profound effect on many.

If there is one thing I have learned through World Vision's 30 Hour Famine, it's that we as God's Church, particularly in America, need to realize that God desires, and expects, us to responds to the needs of the world. For it is in fact the purest form of worship. When asked what worship is, the average American church goer will answer, singing. Singing is only but one very small element of worship. Bigger than singing, is responding to the cry of the needy, the suffering, and the broken in our world (James 1:27, Matthew 25:31-49, Romans 12:1).

I so appreciate what Hillsong United will be releasing this year. Were All in This Together, a feature-length documentary, will illustrate the inseparable union of worship and justice - aimed at inspiring people to see injustice, think creatively and act in response.

Watch this teaser and let it move you closer into the heart of God.



May we never forget ... we are in this together.

Dude, so glad you posted this. I'm in a series through James and this is perfect for illustrating James 1:27 and 2:1ff, which I am in tomorrow... Totally still needed something, and you saved the day. Good seeing you Thursday, let's do coffee soon!

Sweet! Happy to help! I guess it pays to read blogs while prepping messages! Let's try to get together for coffee sometime next week. This week is slammed.

Thank you so much for posting this. Such a power message from God's heart. My wife and I have been struggling with why the world is unfair and why so many suffer, but we are continually trying to channel it towards God and ways we can help to make a difference.
